Walking with God

Posted on

He has made it clear to you, mortal man, what is good and what the Lord is requiring from you— to act with justice, to treasure the Lord’s gracious love, and to walk humbly in the company of your God.

Micah 6:8

The apostles walked with Jesus because he was with them, but how do we walk with the Lord because he is not physically with us? Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away. (Genesis 5:24). From this verse we are to walk faithfully which implies we are to have faith in the Lord to guide our life. It was by faith that Enoch was taken up to heaven without dying—”he disappeared, because God took him.” For before he was taken up, he was known as a person who pleased God. And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. (Hebrews 11:5-6) It is faith that pleases God and Enoch had faith that was extremely pleasing to God, and he took Enoch home before he died. Walking with the Lord is having the faith to walk in his will and living for Christ.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. (Colossians 3:23) Walking with the Lord is to know our divine purpose, to point people to Christ by our words and actions. A strong Christian is virtually always aware of his or her divine purpose and walks with God by communing with the Lord, asking for guidance in ministering in this world. Walking with the Lord is remaining connected with the Lord through the Holy Spirit, and always seeking to reflect Christ-like behavior. This requires living in the Word, fellowship with other Christians, and prayer; because this is required to keep our mind spiritually oriented. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. (Galatians 5:25) We keep in step with the Spirit by making many Godly choices throughout our day, and we do this by prayer, inviting the Lord into every detail of our life. God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord (1 Corinthians 1:9). Walking in step with the Spirit is walking in fellowship with Christ our Lord.

Walking with Lord implies we are his servant and we give him control; and we are now set free in Christ. There is nothing better in this life than walking with God, being one with our Lord, living in faith without fear knowing there is a placed prepared for us in heaven.

Today, walk with the Lord in every detail of your life by trusting his guidance, his words and his strength, for whatever you need at the time. Just as the apostles walked and talked with Jesus in person, we walk and talk with Jesus through the Holy Spirit, and we listen for his answer through our thoughts, through his Word, and through other people.

Prayer: Lord, teach me to truly walk with you, to commune with you and to hear your voice through my thoughts. Help me to know that I am always connected to you through the Spirit and to always know my divine purpose, the reason I exist, to reveal Christ to the world. In Jesus name, Amen
